This Book Was a Tree   Sunday, August 24, 11:00am
Family Crafting & Author Event with MARCIE CUFF, author of This Book Was a Tree: Ideas, Adventures, and Inspiration for Rediscovering the Natural World

Pop into town for family fun on a late Sunday morning!

In This Book Was a Tree, science teacher Cuff issues a call for a new era of pioneers—not leathery, backwoods deerskin-wearing salt pork and hominy pioneers, but strong-minded, clever, crafty, mud pie-making, fort-building individuals committed to examining the natural world and deciphering nature’s perplexing puzzles. Within each chapter, readers will discover a principle for reconnecting with the natural world around them, from learning to be still to discovering the importance of giving back. With a mix of science and hands-on crafts and activities, readers will be encouraged to brainstorm, imagine and understand the world as inventive scientists—to touch, collect, document, sketch, decode, analyze, experiment, unravel, interpret, compare and reflect. Marcie Cuff is a mom, gardener, nature-lover and the creator of the popular blog Mossy, named one of the top 50 Mommy blogs by Babble.

Mud Season   Sunday, August 24, 7 p.m. at the Theater in the Woods
An evening with ELLEN STIMSON, author of Mud Season, and more at the COLD RIVER RADIO SHOW
Held at the Theater in the Wood in Intervale, Tickets $25, doors open at 6:30

The Cold River Radio Show features exclusively New England based artists, performers, authors and storytellers. We’re selling tickets at the store and we’ll be selling books at the show for Ellen Stimson, who will be talking about her very funny memoir, Mud Season. Get your tickets and come up to the Wood! Purchase a copy of the book at White Birch Books and receive $5 off your ticket!

After a getaway in gorgeous rural Vermont—its mountains ablaze in autumnal glory, its Main Streets quaint and welcoming—Ellen Stimson and her family make up their minds even before they get back to St. Louis: “We’re moving to Vermont!” The reality, they quickly learn, is a little muddier than they’d imagined, but, happily, worth all the trouble.
In self-deprecating and hilarious fashion, Mud Season chronicles Stimson’s transition from city life to rickety Vermont farmhouse. When she decides she wants to own and operate the old-fashioned village store in idyllic Dorset, pop. 2,036, one of the oldest continually operating country stores in the country, she learns the hard way that “improvements” are not always welcomed warmly by folks who like things just fine the way they’d always been. She dreams of patrons streaming in for fresh-made sandwiches and an old-timey candy counter, but she learns they’re boycotting the store. Why? “The bread,” they tell her, “you moved the bread from where it used to be.” Can the citified newcomer turn the tide of mistrust before she ruins the business altogether?

KATIE HAFNER  

Thursday, September 18th, 7:00p.m.
Special book discussion with author KATIE HAFNER, based on her memoir Mother Daughter Me

A brave and loving Oprah "Book of the Week" that answers questions about the universal truths of family that are central to all of our lives!

Mother Daughter Me chronicles Katie Hafner's multigenerational living experiment with her elderly mother and teenage daughter that went awry after years of pent-up emotion regarding Katie's mother's alcoholism. Dreaming of a “year in Provence” with her mother, Katie urges Helen to move to San Francisco to live with her and Zoë, Katie’s teenage daughter. Filled with fairytale hope that she and her mother would become friends, and that Helen would become close to her exceptional granddaughter, Katie embarked on an experiment in intergenerational living that she would soon discover was filled with landmines: memories of her parents’ painful divorce, of her mother’s binge drinking and neglect of Katie and her sister, of dislocating moves back and forth across the country, and of Katie’s own widowhood and bumpy recovery. Helen, for her part, was also holding difficult issues at bay. How these three women from such different generations learn to navigate their challenging, turbulent and ultimately healing journey together makes for riveting reading. Explore the complex, deeply binding relationship between mothers and daughters in an author-led discussion with Katie.
